Alliance Française Pietermaritzburg is working closely with the Fort Nottingham Museum to celebrate Bastille Day on Sunday July 14, 2019, from 10h00 to 16h00 at the Fort Nottingham Museum.

Contributions will be made towards the upkeep of the museum and alien plant eradication in Fort Nottingham.

A day of Fabulous French Fun and celebrations with tantalizing French food stalls and fully stocked bars with favourite drinks and great entertainment. (Own food and beverages not allowed)

– Jacques Lagesse will be singing and entertaining with his music and crooning the odd Edith Piaf song. Everyone can join in singing a rousing La Marseillaise

- Test your athletic prowess and skills at wine barrel rolling – the fastest time wins a fabulous hamper from Notties Spar and the accolades of being the champion barrel racer in KZN

- Admire the talent of the cancan dancers of Chislehurst Academic & Arts as you sip a glass of wine.

- Wander through the Montmartre art display provided by Harts (Howick Arts Society) and MOPS (Midlands Outdoor Painters)

- Browse the stalls of homemade goodies together with fresh and organic local farm produce.

- Scrumptious food by Copperfield’s Kitchen including French onion soup to keep you French
